Too Old for Barbie? Never!

When I think of my favorite Christmas gifts from when I was a wee girl, I can't help but think of Barbie. Here is a picture of a Barbie from my childhood which I distinctly remember - Peaches and Cream Barbie.

I got to talking with some co-workers about Barbie and this one stood out to all of us. One point of contention among us - did she have a smell? I seem to recall she smelled of - shocker - peaches and cream. I can picture her now - casually strolling around her Barbie Dream House in her flowing gown while the distinct scent of peaches and cream permeates the air around her.

Ok, maybe 27 is a little old to play with Barbies, but is it too old to collect Barbies? I think not! Especially when so many of the Barbies I've looked at have really cute outfits! Check these out.

Legally Blonde Barbie!

Breakfast at Tiffanys Barbie!

Preferably Pink Barbie

Kate Spade Barbie!

I had the peaches and cream Barbie too! My sister and I did some alterations to the dress, creating strapless glamour by cutting off her straps with what was probably a very dull pair of child-safe scissors!

Oh my goodness Peaches & Cream Barbie was my FAVORITE! I always used to imagine her at grand balls waltzing in her beautiful gown...except in bare feet because I lost her shoes under the deck the very day I got her for my birthday. Sigh...

Oh I own all of those Barbies! The new ones...the B at T, the Legally Blonde, the Kate Spade...

my mom still buys them for me when they come out :)
